Vintage brown faux leather/cardboard hat box w/labels.Please

Here is a lovely, slightly shabby but very useful hatbox-shaped suitcase, big enough to hold all you might need for a weekend away! It's a style that used to be very common, and is believed to date from the 1950s or early 60s.
It is made of what appears to be sturdy cardboard, with a false leather covering, stitched and with metal fittings - at first glance, it appears to be a much more expensive item than it really is - but is clearly strong enough to have survived in good, usable condition all these years!
It is in good usable condition - we recently used it to transport items for a photo shoot and were surprised at its capacity - and measures approximately 8 inches (20 cms)deep, with a diameter of 15 inches, 14 ½ at the flattened edge (37.5/37 cms). The slightly dusty look of some of the photos is due to the flash.
Princess Mimi believes that you can only feel confident
about buying lovely things on the internet if you can have a really good look at them. Here
are all the pictures she has of this item - as usual, clicking on any picture will produce a large
version of the picture - some of the files can be quite large....
